Today we had a little bit of excitement in our area. Okay, it's just a helicopter, but can be pretty exciting when you don't expect them flying around our community. As Rudy was out on "poop patrol" in the backyard he spotted some billowing smoke forming a large plume very close by. We certainly don't live in the "country" per se, but do have country grass areas with a creek about 1/4 mile away from us. This seemed awful close to be a grass fire. The neighbors started to form clusters outside and some even jumped in their cars to see what was going on. Donovan and I just took a walk down to the corner just to see what crazy people were out and whether we could see flames. We saw a heck of a lot of smoke and heard plenty of fire crews on their way. Our close neighbors up at the end of the court gave me the "scoop" as they returned from their gawking. It WAS a field fire, however, it was also burning the back fence of someone's yard and approaching their home. There is an entire row of homes along the fielded area. Scary. Sad. The helicopter was flying extremely low and would drop water on the fire. It would venture out for a refill and would soon return. Just not something we see everyday here.
Whelp...Big Day for us tomorrow...gotta get back to the grind and get the grinding back into the kids (and Rudy)! Does this mean my blogging will take a back seat?
